presumably 1917 (1916 - 1919)
Hoek 2000: 'De tekening is ongedateerd. Volgens het bijschrift in Doesburgs portfolio is ze in 1917 ontstaan en volgens Van Doesburg B (1925) in 1906. Gezien de grote overeenkomst met 534b is 1917 als datering aannemelijk, maar stilistisch gezien is een datering rond 1913 ook voorstelbaar.'
